The programme is complex: it associates working spaces with communication spaces, historical spaces with modern spaces, crossing spaces with spaces of presence, closed and open spaces. The rehabilitation of the Maison de Radio France must answer several stakes, in particular the one to be realised within a used site, and with no interruption of radio programmes.

The Maison de Radio France is a building that continues its symbol whilst being turned towards the future. The building reflects an area, the intervention margin is fine and the architectural stakes are primordial. The programme will respect the architectural quality of Henry Bernard’s project, in order to improve the quality of use of the building and to reinforce its insertion within the site.

The atrium, created in the centre of the building, becomes the new heart of the edifice and answers to the difficulties of identification and of circulation as they exist at Radio France. Bright galleries made of glass link the atrium to the gangways placed on the facade of the interior ring. The whole of these circulations represents a contribution of natural light, a legibility of the paths and an opening onto the central garden. The glass roof of the atrium, integrating photovoltaic cells, is conceived like an exceptional source of renewable energy.

This important rehabilitation of Radio France preserves the spirit of the place whilst renewing it, giving it more cultural dynamic and symbolises the will to be open to the public of the Maison de Radio France. Until 2012, a new auditorium will inaugurated along with a main hall that will host a museum, temporary exhibition areas, a restaurant, a cafeteria and shops.
